SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Romelu Lukaku has scored twice in six minutes to give Belgium a 3-0 lead in the World Cup match against Panama.

Lukaku easily headed the ball in after a nice set up by Kevin De Bruyne in the 69th minute. The midfielder made a nice cut move toward the area to get past a defender before using the outside of his right foot to find Lukaku in front of the goal.

He added his second from close range in the 75th.

Dries Mertens had opened the scoring for Belgium two minutes into the second half. Newcomer Panama was creating few opportunities the other way.
